We always look forward to a new series of Top Gear, and expect bigger and better things from Messrs Clarkson, Hammond and May as every series unfolds. But news recently that Top Gear are on a budget had visions of antics being curtailed and locations being limited to the Home Counties, never mind the prospect […]
Top Gear has to have women – official!
In more mad tinkering by the disingenuous Harriet Harman, it has been revealed that her new legislation on equality in the workplace will be extended to the broadcast media. Which could mean that Top Gear will have to include women in its presenter line-up. You really couldn’t make this up, but New Labour are intent […]
Black Stig Back!
The Stig Saga rolls on! As we reported a few weeks ago, White Stig (the Top Gear test driver) was outed as Ben Collins, and we speculated, as did everyone else, whether this would be the end of White Stig. After all, when Black Stig was outed as Perry McCarthy he was unceremoniously killed-off by […]
The Stig revealed!
We’ve played the game, along with just about every other car site and publication in the world. Not revealing the Stig’s identity that is. But now the truth is out, so there seems precious little point not revealing who it is. ‘Black’ Stig got the sack when he was revealed as F1 hopeful Perry McCarthy […]

Tesla Roadster vs Top Gear
As I’m sure many of you will have seen at the weekend, Clarkson got to play with the Tesla Roadster, an electric sports car based on the Lotus Elise. Made for interesting viewing. It was obvious that the weight of the batteries would compromise the handling, but its actual straight-line speed was a real revelation. […]
The Hamster needs a garage!
Poor old Richard Hammond. First he gets nearly killed playing silly-buggers with a mad rocket car, and now the poor man has nowhere to keep his own cars. Like Clarkson, Top Gear presenter Hammond lives in the sticks, in his case in rural Herefordshire close to the Welsh border, and about 50 miles from his […]
Top Gear Video – Bugatti & Zonda
I’m sure you all saw Top Gear last night, with both the Bugatti Veyron and the Zonda F Roadster on the Top Gear track for the first time. Definitely worth the viewing! The Zonda is relatively new, so you can forgive the boys for not having it on the track before. But the Veyron has […]
